It’s my great pleasure to welcome our new MFA blogging intern, Daniel Jenkins.  A student in the poetry program, Daniel lives and works in the Virginia suburbs of DC where, despite all evidence, he remains hopeful for the prospects of the local NFL franchise.

Thanks to Megan Williams for her outstanding service over the past year.
